Surprised, I started doing my usual "I'm not prepared for this" analysis of the character development. He finished my luggage and says "OK, you can get on the plane but I suggest you read your Dostoevsky a little more carefully."

The A-7 Corsair II
Developed for the Vietnam War, the Corsair II proved to be a trusty and devastating strike aircraft that traded over-the-top features for a formidable range, increased payload capacity, and an affordable price.
